Special Constables are unpaid, part-time police officers who work in some of the most important areas of policing, using their spare time to make a difference. They commit to a minimum of 16 hours a month, although many people do significantly more as the hours can be flexible to fit around work and home life commitments.

Fully-trained Special Constable have full police powers, wear a police uniform and work alongside regular police officers and police staff, with opportunities for promotion to develop their leadership and management skills.
